Superstar Mahesh Babu’s latest action thriller “1-Nenokkadine” is running successfully across a record number of screens. The internet is buzzing with varied opinions about this film. Hands down “1-Nenokkadine” is the best performance of Mahesh till date. The movie billed as an action thriller remained true to its genre throughout. Without any doubt this is a movie that is aeons ahead of it’s time. Other critics will tell you all about how this movie is technically innovative. Here we shall talk only about the commercial aspects of the film . The film has been crticized from some quarters that it is not commercially viable, for the Telugu audience atleast. That however, is totally untrue. Yes, we have already reviewed it once before. However, a path breaking movie such as this deserves more than a first opinion. The movie was a lot more impressive than when we viewed it for the first time. After a few snips the movie is now a lot more attractive than before. As critics we are more than willing to change our opinion to encourage great cinema.
“1-Nenokkadine”, is the story of a highly successful rock musician who is plagued by a very peculiar problem. His past horrors have left a lasting impression on his mind. However, he discovers that his past may have been a hallucination. The entire movie has Rockstar Gowtham trying to come to terms with his condition while hunting down his past. Sentimental values, thrilling action episodes and great soul touching music this movie has it all. However, audiences have been reportedly left unsatisfied somewhat. Frankly, the many different views expressed about this film are so very disheartening. Everybody has their own opinion about every movie. It is not compulsory that every member of the audience has to like every movie that he see’s. However, it is indeed very disheartening when a fantastic movie faces unwanted criticism.
This film is definitely years ahead of it’s time. Telugu Cinema hasn’t yet come to the point where the audience is ready to accept thought provoking cinema. From childhood we have been bred and brought up on commercial cinema. Stepping away from the traditional formula was a huge step for Director Sukumar and Mahesh. Taking a bold step in this direction has opened up a whole new genre in Telugu Cinema. This is great news for anybody who hopes to see Telugu Cinema moving in the direction of meaningful and real cinema. “1-Nenokkadine” is the only answer to the many critics of the Telugu industry who are very dismissive of the commercial style of cinema that we enjoy.
In conclusion, this was a film that would have fared a lot better had it not been made in Tollywood. This is the feeling expressed by critics from other languages. Can Telugu Cinema not be more accepting of path-breaking films like “1-Nenokkadine”? Team StrikingSoon is not the fan of any particular hero. We express this opinion as ardent Cinema lovers. We wish to see more thought provoking cinema in our industry. Entertainment should not be defined only as comedy. It is time we moved past a few laughs and concentrated on making sensible cinema. Hats off to Superstar Mahesh for redefining the boundaries of Telugu Cinema. Stepping out of the restrictive boundaries of traditional filmmaking, Mahesh’s “1-Nenokkadine” gives a ray of hope to aspiring filmmakers to step up and make innovative creations on screen. Telugu Cinema is in no way inferior to Hollywood even. This is the future that “1-Nenokkadine” has shown us today. This is the future that we dreamt of. This is the future that we will have the privilege to experience. We are truly privileged to experience Mahesh Babu’s extraordinary acting prowess in our lifetime . Let us hope that Mahesh’s example will ensure a whole new genre of exciting and thought provoking films.
